And that wraps up the T20 series, folks! Not the kind of cricket we expected given this series is featuring two mercurial sides. Let's put our hopes on West Indies coming back stronger in the ODI series, and hope that we can get to see some thrillers in the upcoming games.

It was great providing the coverage. See you at future games. Good night. Take care!

...

Sarfraz Ahmed: "Very happy, credit to the boys,  they kept their cool in this heat. It was a complete team effort. We knew we shouldn't lose focus coming into this game. Bowlers deserve credit for restricting a good team on a good pitch. We didn't over-attack, we let happen that things that happened.

...

Carlos Brathwaite: " We could have come out better. We did not bat well in these games. Pakistan played well and are deserving winners. ODI series is coming up and hopefully we will perform better there. But us as a team to go back and come better. I do not review my performance as a player and a skipper. Tough times do not last but tough people do"

...

Imad Wasim: "I just work hard and keep things simple.I try to bowl it at the batsman's pads, and not offer them room. I pride myself at my batting."

...

Presentation time, folks!

Imad Wasim is named the name of the match for his 3 for 21 runs, and the man of the series for 9 wickets in this series.

...

And that's that! Punjabi songs are playing in the background as Pakistan register a famous clean sweep of the World T20 Champions! And what a champion like performance it has been by them led by the young captain Sarfraz Ahmed. Pakistan looked like a team with a plan, which they executed superbly. 

West Indies, on the other side, seemed as if they never turned up for the series. Barring for a few overs in the second T20, they never troubled the home side. Barring DJ Bravo, their batting looked totally out of sorts. The bowling was all over the place except Kesrick Williams' spirited display in this last game. Even the fielding unit displayed a lackadaisical performance.

They need to pull up their socks come the ODI and Test series.

...

15.1 Brathwaite to S Malik, SIX, what a way to finish the game. Malik just lofts the WI captain over long-on and Pakistan seal a 3-0 series win.

...

2 more needed. Can Malik finish in the next delivery?

...

14.6 S Narine to Babar Azam, no run, punched off the back foot and straight to the fielder at cover and they will have to wait for the next over.

...

14.5 S Narine to Babar Azam, 2 runs, dances down the track and drives it down to long-off for a single.

...

14.4 S Narine to S Malik, 1 run, with a single to deep point, Malik brings up Pakistan's 100 and they are on hit away now.

...

14.3 S Narine to S Malik, no run, Malik is beaten for pace and edges one to short third man.

...

14.2 S Narine to Babar Azam, 1 run, that was slightly short and hit straight to the fielder at cover but they pick up a single anyway.

...

14.1 S Narine to S Malik, 1 run, punched off the back foot for a single.

...

That was a big over for Pakistan. They now need just 7 to register a famous clean sweep against the current World T20 Champions.

And what a first series as captain for Sarfraz Ahmed. Credit must go to him for being able to lead so beautifully only in his first series.

...

13.6 DJ Bravo to S Malik, 1 run, yorker on the pads and flicked towards deep midwicket for a single that will keep Malik on strike.

...

13.5 DJ Bravo to S Malik, FOUR, 141 KMPH (EXPRESS PACE FROM BRAVO). Malik danced down the tracked and just lofted it over Bravo's head for a boundary and Bravo showing why he bowls so many slower balls.

...

13.4 DJ Bravo to S Malik, FOUR, full toss on the pads and Malik is the one who is smiling this time as he brings up the fifty partnership.

...

13.3 DJ Bravo to S Malik, no run, what can you do when the ball doesn't even come on to the bat. 97 KMPH. THAT IS SLOWER THAN MOST SPINNERS. Perhaps that's why Bravo has a chuckle.

...

13.2 DJ Bravo to S Malik, no run, Bravo's bag of tricks pulled out again. Bravo's very own in-dipping yorker that was slightly wide and well dug out by Malik.

...

13.1 DJ Bravo to S Malik, 2 runs, a faster bouncer from Bravo and Malik gets on top of it to pick up a couple to deep mid-wicket.

...

Smart batting by these two. Without hitting boundaries, they are managing to strike at a 100 by just rotating the strike.


DJ to finish his spell

...

12.6 S Narine to S Malik, 1 run, good hit from Malik who dances down the track but is still just a single.

...

12.5 S Narine to Babar Azam, 1 run, another single from Azam and that brings Malik on stirke.

...

12.4 S Narine to S Malik, 1 run, this time Malik diverts it to the fielder's right and gets off strike.
